How to use the icons in your toolbars?
If you want to add icons in application toolbars, we don't recommend to make individual ICO files. It is possible but all the GUI SDK tools use image strips instead. A image strip is a large image containing all the icons placed side-by-side. Accepted file format is BMP (recent SDKs accept PNG also). Once the image strip is programatically loaded in the application GUI, the toolbars and menus are populated with the icons.
If you want to learn more about the ability of IconWorkshop to open and edit image strips for toolbars, we recommend to read these topics:

5. Now this is a child's play: redo the same for the other icons using the various objects available in the list.
7. Once the toolbar image strip is finished, just save it by selecting the appropriate image format (BMP and PNG support RGB/A).
Create a GIF image for a Website
If you want to add illustration icons on your website we recommend to create GIF images. Axialis IconWorkshop has been designed to open/save icon files (ICO, ICNS), but a useful feature permits exporting an image included in an icon to a GIF file with color optimization. Follow this procedure to create a GIF image:
3. Once the icon is done, choose File/Export/Compuserve GIF.
6. When done, click OK. Select the location and filename of the GIF file to create.
7. You're done! Now include the illustration image in your HTML page.
